    Why aren’t you verified?

    Instead of automatic watering why not make it hydropinc. Replace the soil with something like hydroton expanded clay pelets or simplay lava rock. At the bottom you could have a small reservoir of water and a pump that pumps it up to the grow bed. You set the pump on a timer and let it run for 15 minutes every couple of hours. The water (with fertilizer) drains back into the reservoir, but the hydroton will stay wet until the next cycle.

    As always nice design!

    Well done Ben!

    great idea man, looks great

  6. Bryant M. Serre on December 20, 2021 at 2:07 pm

    just wanted to say – just found out about your channel and love it! definitely going to be doing something with the LED grow lights in my own place!

  7. Jim Ryan on December 20, 2021 at 2:08 pm

    I like the idea, and will likely do this. I think that the general construction details could be used for a small shelving unit.

  8. Pedro Palacios on December 20, 2021 at 2:09 pm

    Wow… so easy 🙁

  9. Crafts With Ellen on December 20, 2021 at 2:10 pm

    Hydroponics is the dream scenario for me! Fish provide the nutrients for the plants, plants filter the water for the fish, how awesome is that 😀

    Hi! I recently did something like that, using a "temporizer" similar to this one : https://www.amazon.it/dp/B00NPWMKOY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Qx-hzb5QFFP4N easy to program

  11. Bhavani Atmo on December 20, 2021 at 2:10 pm

    Cute project

  12. evilkasper on December 20, 2021 at 2:15 pm

    For automated watering you can look at Dutch Bucket hydroponic setups. You will need a reservoir, a fountain pump and drip irrigation tubing. It should be located near the diy lawn sprinklers. It comes in different sizes and with a bit of work you could hide it in the copper tubing.

  13. Dan Weber on December 20, 2021 at 2:15 pm

    Nice work Ben. You could use a soil humidity sensor to trigger a water solenoid to open when it gets too dry. I have this one and it works pretty well. It runs off of 12v so it could be battery powered if needed. There are also 12v solenoids out there.

    love the simplicity of the planter and the copper and marble paired together really make this unique and original .(and aesthetically pleasing)

  15. yeld on December 20, 2021 at 2:16 pm

    You could explore building your own irrigation system using Arduino, humidity sensor, a pump and a reservoir.

  16. Dean Liaw on December 20, 2021 at 2:16 pm

    Don’t you just LOVE having sawdust in your home?

  17. Daniel Borg on December 20, 2021 at 2:18 pm

    kratke hydroponics

  18. Maciek Gołębiewski on December 20, 2021 at 2:20 pm

    You should check Arduino for automating things.

  19. Ricardo Junqueira on December 20, 2021 at 2:20 pm

    Ben, why on earth you haven’t built yourself a workbench until now???

  20. ncnc5 nc on December 20, 2021 at 2:21 pm

    wow gj!

  21. Bug Tussel on December 20, 2021 at 2:27 pm

    check horizon hydroponics @ https://www.horizenhydroponics.com/ they may have an irrigation system you are looking for. plus the owners are great people to deal with.

  22. Swedensson on December 20, 2021 at 2:31 pm

    A couple of friends have a startup working on automatic irrigation for home use. Check out Sios at http://www.sios.nu/

  23. Timmmo Timmmbo on December 20, 2021 at 2:32 pm

    All you need to do to adjust the height of the light is to wrap the cord around the pipe. One turn every week or so, depending on how fast the plants grow…

  24. cava sinon on December 20, 2021 at 2:33 pm

    For the irrigation maybe you can use… Copper pipes ?! 😀

  25. nihir on December 20, 2021 at 2:33 pm

    by seaching "passive hydroponic" or "passive bucket hydroponic" you can find info on easy self watering planters. Watering doesn’t come ruin the aesthetics if done right.

  26. Ginger & Lime on December 20, 2021 at 2:34 pm

    So beautiful

  27. Voice of Reason on December 20, 2021 at 2:36 pm

    I wonder if the grow lights are dangerous to your eyes?

  28. barkbathory on December 20, 2021 at 2:37 pm

    not creative 🙁

  29. Julian Do It on December 20, 2021 at 2:39 pm

    Why did you additionally seal the sides?

  30. sås on December 20, 2021 at 2:39 pm

    Definitely check out Windowfarms. Using plastic bottles as planters, and some creative tubing you get a dripper system that you can hang in your windows, or just add some led lights to it to have it growing anywhere

  31. The Hobbyist on December 20, 2021 at 2:39 pm

    For a somewhat "auto Irrigation" you could build a small Deep Water Culture hydroponic system out of an old plastic folgers can or any other water tight cylinder container. All you need is an Air Stone, Small aquarium Air Pump, and some water dissolving nutrients. This makes a system that u would only have to mess with every 1-2 weeks.

  32. Bridget Umphryes on December 20, 2021 at 2:40 pm

    nice

  33. SLWRTHNU on December 20, 2021 at 2:40 pm

    0:46 Putting your tattoo to use! hahaha nice.

  34. JaiMichael Leal on December 20, 2021 at 2:41 pm

    you should make some sort of aquaponics planter. growing plants using a fish tank essentially

  35. Sarah Stevenson on December 20, 2021 at 2:41 pm

    basically how to make a snazzy room for your weed plant ! 😅✌🌼💛🍁🍀

  36. TheBMallory on December 20, 2021 at 2:44 pm

    you could route the cable into the copper pipes
    here’s what I did for automatic irrigation :

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=brszh5UQ3Xs

    not as pretty but it can easily be scaled down as I have some extra electonics due to the solar panel. Basically an arduino controller, a moisture sensor, a small 12v water pump and a relay should do the trick. here’s my super simple arduino code :
    https://github.com/bmallory/arroseur-automatique/blob/master/arroseur-automatique.ino
    hit me up if you use a moisture sensor as there’s a few tricks I learned while doing this

  37. Jerichote on December 20, 2021 at 2:45 pm

    you can try aquaponics!

  38. afiah2o on December 20, 2021 at 2:46 pm

    One system that works well for irrigation is to make a "self watering" pot. There is essentially a reservoir in the bottom of the pot (which must be water tight, so, in this planter version, you’d need to glue an additional piece of marble into the bottom, and seal it). The reservoir can then be made in a number of ways: a plastic pot can be cut to about a third the height of your overall container. Drill many holes in the bottom of it, and place it upside down inside your planter. The purpose of the pot is to hold the soil above the water, while the holes allow the roots to access the water. You then attach a short length of pvc pipe, with an angle cut across the bottom, so that the pipe runs vertically from the top to the bottom of the planter. This is your water delivery system, and essentially allows you to water under the plants, into the reservoir. Growing medium then goes into the pot, and your plant is planted directly into it. In the case of square planters, you may wish to use a square frame for your reservoir frame, instead of a pot. The frame can be topped with fine galvanized mesh, in place of the upside-down "holey" pot. The mesh serves the same purpose as the pot – to hold the soil above the water, so the roots can reach it but the soil is not saturated. An auto-drip system can water directly through the watering tube. More information on self watering planters is available online, and they work equally well indoors and out. The additional set-up pays for itself in maintenance time saved. Great for herbs, veggies, fruit. Great video! Thanks!

    Sub Irrigated Planters Systems for watering

  40. das hasguns on December 20, 2021 at 2:47 pm

    You should have ran the cord through the copper for a cleaner look. IMO.

  41. MaBu-Kunsthandwerk on December 20, 2021 at 2:47 pm

    Super Idee
    Gruß MaBu

  42. Live Free and DIY on December 20, 2021 at 2:48 pm

    Very nice… and, if you soldered the copper, you could use it as part of the irrigation system; DIY Creators did something like that with PVC to make a outside dog shower 🤓👍

  43. Intro Maker on December 20, 2021 at 2:49 pm

    Hello, you can use arduino to create an automated irrigation system. I can’t link, but google it or send me a pm. Also, you can connect the lamp to a timer to turn the light on specific hours depending on the plant needs (some plants needs specific amount of darkness per day).

    Hi Ben! I’ve been following your video for a while now, great stuff!! Do you mind sharing your workspace in your video or advice on how you do a home project in the space of your home? I tend to want to do my woodworking in the living room but its just insane to clean up. Can you share some tips?

  47. Living to DIY with Rachel Metz on December 20, 2021 at 2:51 pm

    Yes to this all.

  48. Double Dare Fan on December 20, 2021 at 2:52 pm

    3:38 Why did not you put a piece of marble on the left side? It looks lopsided.

  49. Acyv on December 20, 2021 at 2:53 pm

    is the maker podcast on Spotify? or where can I find it

  50. Alex11531 on December 20, 2021 at 2:53 pm

    can you use any led lights?
